Aftermath of Gustav

Turns out that I live just outside the cone of Gustav. We just got tropical storm size wind and rains. I can deal with that. We didn't leave although I was nervous about it because the storm could have shifted, but it didn't. Our power went out for an hour -- that was it. We didn't even have any trees down or anything. I'm very grateful for that. I worried more about Marsha because she does live inside the cone of that storm.

Thanks so much for all your concern and well wishes it means so much to me. I feel the love. Our home and neighborhood did fine. Many of the bands of the storm hit you just east of us and hit biloxi/gulfport just east of us and we seem to have been covered by a force field. I don't think we even lost power. We did have some branches and trees down but they didn't hurt any houses that I have seen. Kids are back in school today. The quiet is divine.

I wanted to make a mockumentary of the "storm damage". Like pointing to a fallen leaf and saying look at this debree, there was wind recorded at 30 mph with gust of 50mph. Oh my goodness look at the branch, a branch has fallen. Then show some people slowly walking down the street and say see the people flee. Oh the horror. But,who has the time for that.

It would be funny though! My daughter is back in school today too. I was kind of surprised to get a call saying her school would be closed on Tuesday too. My university was not closed.

Phew! Thank goodness all is well with you.

Les: I am such as worrywart about these things. Ever since Katrina -- actually, probably before -- ever since Ivan. But you think I'd be used to them -- I've lived in Florida and here. Thanks for your thoughts.

I'm glad you were ok! (and Marsha too!)

I was really worried about Marsha -- it looks like the new one, Ike, might go over toward Texas but I'm still watching it. You never know.
